With the Help from Superheroes - A New Writing Unit

Today I revealed the new writing unit to the students; an exploration into how to develop character, plot and setting. What better way to explore all of these tools of writing than through comic books! In this unit, each student will develop a superhero with a backstory, a super villain complete with backstory of how they got so evil, as well as a setting development for the superhero and supervillain to fight.  We will not be creating the actual comic book but just components of it.
Today we delved into the world of these characters by reading our new comic books and we will continue the discussion the next couple of weeks. This project should wrap up just in time for spring break.
